Published video of the shooting of the world's most powerful mortar

67
A video appeared showing the shooting of the world's most powerful mortar. The frames were posted by the Zvezda television channel.




The 240-millimeter gun of Russian production 2X4 "Tulip" is currently the most powerful mortar in the world. A video was published on the network demonstrating firing from it at targets located at a distance from 8 to 40 km.

It is noted that live firing was carried out by artillerymen of the Western Military District: exercises were held in the Tambov region. The fighters managed to hit an order of 150 targets. The video was published by the TV channel "Star».

In September of the 2018 of the year, Uraltransmash, the lead developer of the Tulips, published a message stating that these self-propelled artillery mortars, armed with Russian aircraft, will undergo a modernization cycle before the 2020 of the year.

At the moment, it is not known which version of the mortar is captured on the video. It is known that in the course of modernization, Tulips should receive new radio stations and external communications equipment, advanced surveillance devices, and additional weapons. In addition, the updated mortar will grow with an anti-nuclear defense instrument complex.

When firing for guidance on a target, the unmanned aileron complex was used.

Operation of the Soviet 240-millimeter self-propelled mortar "Tulip" 2С4 began in the 1972 year. It was created to destroy fortified buildings, as well as fortifications, large concentrations of enemy manpower and armored vehicles. The first combat use of the Tulip was recorded in Afghanistan.

        Hmm, this is not even the main point, although it all depends on what exactly is meant by the definition of "protection". Thus, by means of simple conclusions, it is logical to come to the conclusion that the main reason for the return of the Tulips was precisely their ability to "grow mushrooms by sowing cucumbers" (almost like Tsoi's). fellow laughing With "Peonies" - "Malkas" the same theme - not just heavy artillery, but quite a means of delivering TNW with a high probability of use. yes

      ... One former sniper, having learned that I served in the mounted shooting unit, gritted his teeth and confessed: "I hate mortars!" It turned out that he was once covered with 82-mm battalions. The poor fellow piled into his pants with longing and hopelessness. When I explained that our mortar had a barrel five meters long, and there were thirty-two kilos of explosive in the mine, the sniper shrugged his shoulders and said: “Well, this is no longer scary, I guess. It's already ... Anyway” ...

      Mortars are artillery for the poor, so having such a mortar with a range of up to 40 km, in my opinion, is more profitable than making a gun of this caliber.

                The material of the projectile depends on the acceleration (in addition to the destination), and the acceleration depends on the pressure in the barrel. Pressure can not be changed relative to the current one using slower gunpowder and a long barrel.

                        Even for smooth-bore hunting weapons, gunpowders of various purposes are produced (the mass of the shell, mainly). The range is approximately up to 24 g, 24-38 g, and from 38 g.
                        If you equip the cartridge with gunpowder for a small hitch a large hitch - the pressure in the barrel will be exceeded, if on the contrary - the gunpowder simply will not burn out.
                        The meaning of the different burning speeds of gunpowder is the most uniform pressure in the barrel when firing.

      Antares RF, this is the successor of the USSR. Both legally: paying off USSR debts, and morally, devotion to traditions: 9 May Victory Day and even 23 February. Monuments in droves and in the rank of state policy are not demolished. We maintain the principle of territorial structure on a national basis from the time of the USSR: autonomous republics, territories, etc., and all with a guarantee of local languages. Moreover, even Tatarstan went to a meeting, and agreed to create a local Presidential Institute.
      Ukraine, deposed itself of everything connected with the Ukrainian SSR, not to mention the USSR.
      Respected Antares, this is one of the few maidanuty in Ukraine, which had brains. Do you sometimes read your idols and the fathers of the founders of New Ukraine after the 2014 year:

      Even the article was on the Military Review about this:Rethink the ussr

      Just Tymchuk and Co. were the first to realize that they needed to look for the foundation of their future existence, and found it ... in the Ukrainian SSR. Is it a coincidence? I think no. It’s just that Ukraine had all the most heroic and great things in the days of the Ukrainian SSR, and during Banderstadt ... “RUIN”. By the way, in the article there is not a single mention of this history error, which is also perplexing.

      I am sure that many, after reading the note, raised an eyebrow in disbelief. How so? Tymchuk wrote that it was not Bandera with Shukhevych, and not the UPR with Grushevsky, and not even Vyacheslav Chernovol with the ROC that should become the foundation of the future Ukraine, but the “damned” Verkhovna Zrad and at the same time decoration of the USSR - the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.

      True, Tymchuk and Co. propose "Soviet Socialist" to be thrown away, and everything else to be used as the basis of the new Ukrainian ... Republic.

      But if you think about it, and think logically? (continued on the link)

        Antares of the Russian Federation, is the successor of the USSR. How legally

        I'm sorry that I break the stamps, but the Russian Federation is not the assignee of the USSR
        and the country is the successor (thanks to the American lawyers of Yeltsin)
        request to the administration
        By common agreement of the CIS member states, it was decided to consider the Russian Federation as a state-successor of the USSR with all the consequences that follow from this: the transfer to the Russian Federation of the place of permanent member of the UN Security Council; recognition of the status of a nuclear power by the Russian Federation within the meaning of the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons

        so that all CIS countries can be considered legal successors, but this is not legally confirmed and recognized anywhere
        For the Russian Federation, the legal acceptance is recognized only in narrow issues (UN place, veto, USSR assets and liabilities, nuclear weapons, etc.)
        The Russian Federation cannot even be held responsible in the former USSR zone! What kind of full legal succession can we talk about?
        Modern Russia is a successor to the USSR, the concept of which was put forward by American lawyers and thanks to this, it was not necessary to change anything at the UN.
        So you can’t talk about legal succession without mentioning exactly where it can be applied to the Russian Federation.
        Dear Antares, this is one of the few maidanut in Ukraine, which had brains. Do you sometimes read your idols and fathers of the founders of New Ukraine after 2014:

        You know, the English sources suit me. I choose the sources myself, and not on the basis of information pressure
        As for the legal succession, he devoted more than one hour in RuNet.

      And they were right. There are no more such power in the world. And there wasn’t.
      Even the notorious 2B1 "Oka" had no time to get hold of nuclear ammunition.

    It is most likely talking about those in service, but the "Köyhän kansan Stuka" was never put into service, there was only a prototype for testing, and an order for only 6 pieces for subsequent military trials. In the spring of the 44th, all development work was curtailed, in the fall the order was completely canceled, and later the license was sold to the Swedes.

    Modernization - will it be painted on top without stripping off the old paint? It would be nice to shoot smaller ones. The resource of the "Soviet bouquet" is very small, a few shots, and somewhere a couple of thousand km. run, no more. We would like to save them, because we won't make them anymore ...

    Well, that’s what the Soviet past played, Oleg Divov who served in the 80s described, power, but alas for whom? You can’t take such a thing out of the reserve, the USSR was created, although now in the era of armless managers in a hurry to give out wishful thinking it is fashionable.
    Get ready for a friend’s war.
